Our Films

With an enviable slate of some twenty-six feature projects and over a dozen short films ready for conceptualisation promos, Oceanstorm Films has taken the reigns of development firmly in its own hands. Whilst peers work on a single concept, often for years on end, before moving onto the next project, we remain in a state of permanent development as we continually seek new stories to push forwards towards production. This means that no matter the financial pressure of raising funds, and we know that is considerable, we will always have something to move ahead with, irrespective of genre and budget.

 

Take a look at some of the projects we are currently financing, have in development, or are in pre-production with, either independently or in associaiton with international partners in Europe and in the USA.

WHAT LIES BENEATH

 

A young woman washes up on a remote Cornish coastline in the aftermath of a great storm. Rescued by a passing good smaritan and nursed back to health she slowly begins to piece together the fragments of her broken memory to discover who she is and why she came to be at sea. What she learns, and the fear she instils in those she meets on her journey as a result, will change the lives of everyone forever.

SAFEZONE

 

A young Irish soldier returning from Afghanistan, and left severely injured by an IED, is forced to confront the painful truth of his girlfriend's infidelity. Wracked by physical and emotional pain, the indignity of medical discharge from the job he loves, and the devastation of betrayal by both the woman he loves and his closest sibling, he plans with military precision, and in spite of his disabilities, an abduction to teach them all a lifelong lesson about loyalty.

MISSION XMAS-ABLE

 

As the church bell beckons the end to another Christmas Eve, high above the northern village of Clausville, deep in the Artic Circle, an old man, bedecked in his familiar red suit, hastens his way across the tundra to deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls. But right behind him, in the snowy wake of his reindeer-pulled sleigh, the evil and mischievous Krampus, with his skeleton minions, pulled along in a bone sleigh and driving a team of black forest bears with whip and flute, gives chase. The race this year is on, and Krampus will do any dispicable thing to ensure it's his presents the children open on Xmas morning !
